Microsoft Surface Pro 3 becomes official, price and pre-orders
We do love it when a plan comes together and just a couple of days ago we reported on a specs and price leak for a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet. It was rumored that it could be unveiled at a Microsoft event today and that’s exactly what has just happened. We now have the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 12-inch tablet official price and more.
As rumored, the Surface Pro 3 steps up to a 12-inch display with resolution of 2160 x 1440. This is a slim tablet at only 9 .1mm thick and it weighs 800g, pretty light for a device this size. The new Surface Pro supports pen input and also has a multi-position kickstand, while there are also improvements to the new Type Covers needed for this larger size.
The tablet comes in several variants using Intel Core i3, i5 or i7 processors and storage options of between 64 and 512GB. There’s also a 5-megapixel camera for the front and rear. The starting price is $799 for the base model going right up to $1949 depending on the configuration. Prices in between are $999, $1,299 and $1,549.
If you’re wondering when you can get your hands on one we can tell you that pre-orders open tomorrow at Microsoft online, Microsoft retail stores and other retailers. However, Microsoft has not yet specified a release date.
You can see an official Microsoft promo for the tablet in the YouTube video that we’ve embedded below this story. Do you think you might purchase the Microsoft Surface Pro 3?
